IT'S ALL REAL LIFE!

People think that what you do online has no effect on what happens offline. 
The thing is, there's not actually any difference between online life and offline life...
 
It's ALL REAL LIFE.
If you get hurt by what someone says online, it still hurts when you're offline.
If you share something online you didn't mean to, the repercussions will follow you offline.
STOP BLOCK SPEAK is all about making sure you know what to do when someone is interacting with you online in a way that makes you feel bad. Sometimes people call it CYBER BULLYING, but that makes it sound like it stops when you put your phone down or close the lid of the laptop. Problem is, because its ALL REAL LIFE, just going offline doesn't make it stop, and let's face it, going offline is like admitting defeat.
